We welcome all contributions. All code changes are reviewed by several pairs of eyes, optimized iteratively and tested extensively, often using production code of various projects and people.

What programming language does grammY use?

grammY is written from the ground up in TypeScript—a superset of JavaScript. Therefore, it runs on Node.js.

However, grammY can also run on Deno, which positions itself as the successor of Node.js. (Technically, you can even run grammY on modern browsers, though this will rarely be useful.)
